Litany of Gendlin

What is true is already so.
Owning up to it doesn’t make it worse.
Not being open about it doesn’t make it go away.
And because it’s true, it is what is there to be interacted with.
Anything untrue isn’t there to be lived.
People can stand what is true,
for they are already enduring it.

—Eugene Gendlin

Pragmatic repurposing

I originally started this blog as an attempt to discuss a topic I was interested in at the time: climate science. Well, some months have passed, and whilst I’m still interested in climate science, that’s no longer my main focus. (Actually, I started the blog partially to help my make my application for the MA in Climate and Society at Columbia University look better, which worked, but I didn’t end up going.)

This February I started a Masters of Economics back at my alma mater, Melbourne University. So I’m officially repurposing this blog to talk about my attempts to learn economics with no undergraduate background, and, since I’m a software engineer by trade, I’ll talk about code sometimes.

I love a good discussion, so please feel free to comment on anything I post!
